Abstract

Intelligent Visual Surveillance has a wide spectrum of promising applications and has been researched extensively for over four decades. Numerous approaches have been proposed but due to lack of reliability, very few are actually commercialized into real-world applications to provide public security and safety. The reliability of an intelligent surveillance system depends on multiple factors such as real-time performance, autonomy, accuracy and robustness in a wide array of real-life problems. This research focuses on narrowing the gap between existing theoretical algorithms and practical implementation by developing an adaptive, completely autonomous, unsupervised learning based multi-camera intelligent visual surveillance system with highly reliable human detection and tracking capabilities in unconstrained scenarios with minimal assumptions.
